11. Fire Walker
Another infamous obstacle, and a postcard image for Tough Mudder, the Fire Walker is truly one of the most badass obstacles.

Watch out for wet straw underfoot, sometimes kerosene makes the floor slippery.
Hint: Train by building up your lung capacity with explosive aerobic exercise. Do 100-yard sprints in sets of 5 on a local football field. This way, when you’re mid smoke-cloud, you’ll have the capacity to hold your breath and avoid inhaling nasty carcinogens.
